Thought police

The political whoring going on around Milwaukee's violence is dismaying. Competing press conferences; finger-pointing about who put out their statement first or who was too slow to issue a statement decrying the criminality of it all.

Spilled blood and hot air -- what a useless, wasteful combination.

The winner of the blathering bloviation BS award is County Executive Scott Walker, who stepped up to say:

"If you even think about committing an illegal act, you will end up in jail."

That's just plain silly, something to say at a press conference when you don't have anything real to contribute.
